Empowerment – We encourage and foster the belief that each individual has the potential to grow and develop into his/her own unique person.
Community Awareness – We strive to increase community awareness and understanding of the value of respite services and specialized residential care to each individual that we encounter.
Individuality – The unique needs of the family and individuals are the focus of planning and delivery of all supports and services.
Quality – The Quality of life, service and living with respect and dignity.
“Access-Ability” – We ensure that our environments are accessible to all individuals, given their abilities.
Trust – The trust we develop with our families and individuals is integral to our organization. Our services are provided in a manner that is tailored to their strengths, needs and experiences.
Passion & Compassion – Commitment to our work comes from within (energy, joy, playfulness) and flows out to benefit others.
